Day 1 - Coolidge Dam to Hawk Springs Canyon (River Mile 2.9)

Uneventful drive up from the Phoenix area with a short stop in Globe for Subway sandwiches. Then it was off to the launch point at the river gauge bridge. Minimal rigging/packing involved and we shoved off at just after 2 PM. The first of several swims occurred roughly one minute later. There were a lot of sweeper, strainers, and class II rapids at this flow. We were satisified with a short day and pulled into the flat water just upstream of the Hawk Springs dry wash. Took a few pictures, a very pleasant stroll up the wash, and enjoyed a pot of Kiki's Jambalaya.
